Yuli is based on the rags-to-renown international career of Cuban ballet star Carlos Acosta, and on his 2007 memoir No Way Home. Starring Acosta himself, as well as the incredible debut from 10 year old Edilson Manuel Olbera Núñez, Yuli looks back over Acosta’s career hitting every thematic note – family, sacrifice, maleness, black identity, exile and the transforming power of art.
Directed by Iciar Bollaín (Even the Rain, The Olive Tree) and written by Paul Laverty (I Daniel Blake), Yuli will move you too tears.
